The Xbae library is a set of two Motif widgets, XbaeMatrix and XbaeCaption.

XbaeMatrix is a Motif widget which presents an editable array of string data to the user in a scrollable table similar to a spreadsheet.

XbaeCaption is a simple Motif manager widget used to associate an XmLabel (caption) with it's single child. The label may be either an XmString or Pixmap and can be displayed in any one of twelve positions around the perimeter of the child.

X11PERF 1.5 (2-FEB-2000)

X11 server performance test - Authors: Joel McCormack, Phil Karlton
Susan Angebranndt, Chris Kent, Keith Packard, Graeme Gill
Licence: free usage and distribution - See Copyright notice in source files
VAX: DEC C 5.2, VMS 6.2 - Alpha, DEC C 5.2, VMS 6.2 - Motif 1.2-4

The x11perf program runs one or more performance tests and reports timings 
of the operations.
Many graphics benchmarks assume that the graphics device is used to display the
output of a single fancy graphics application, and that the user gets his work
done on some other device, like a terminal.  Such benchmarks usually measure
drawing speed for lines, polygons, text, etc.

Port done by David Mathog for VMS 7.2-1 motif 1.2-5, retro-ported for VMS 6.2 and Motif 1.2-4

XCE (8-APR-1994)

X11 Color Editor - Author: Andrew Peebles
Licence: None specified
VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 5.5-2, Motif 1.1 - Alpha: DEC C 5.2, VMS 6.2, Motif 1.2

xce is a simple tool for experimenting with color combinations on a window in real time. When it comes up, a small screen is displayed next to four sliders. Three of the four sliders represent the primary colors red, green, and blue. By moving the sliders, one can adjust the mix of primary colors in the small screen. A lable displays the hex representation of the current color, suitable for cut and paste into application resource files. The forth slider adjusts the intensity of the current color buy causing the three primary color sliders to move at the same time.

XHOST (3-NOV-1994)

X11 Server Access Control - Author: Bob Scheifler, MIT
Licence: free usage and distribution - See Copyright notices in source files
VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 6.0, UCX 2.0D - Alpha: DEC C 4.0, VMS 6.1, UCX 3.1

The xhost program is used to add and delete host names or user names to the list allowed to make connections to the X server. In the case of hosts, this provides a rudimentary form of privacy control and security. It is only sufficient for a workstation (single user) environment, although it does limit the worst abuses. Environments which require more sophisticated measures should implement the user-based mechanism or use the hooks in the protocol for passing other authentication data to the server.

XKEYCAPS 2.29 (9-MAY-1995)

Keyboard Mapping Display - Author: Jamie Zawinski jwz@jwz.org
Licence: Free usage and distribution - see Copyright notices in source files
VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 5.5-2 - Alpha: DEC C 4.0, VMS 6.1

xkeycaps is a graphical front-end to xmodmap. It opens a window that looks like a keyboard; moving the mouse over a key shows what KeySyms and Modifier bits that key generates. Clicking on a key simulates KeyPress/KeyRelease events on the window of your choice. It is possible to change the KeySyms and Modifiers generated by a key through a mouse-based interface. This program can also write an input file for xmodmap to recreate your changes in future sessions.

XMFM (6-MAY-1994/31-JAN-1999)

X11/Motif File Manager - Author: Jan Newmarch
Licence: GNU licence
VAX: VAX C 3.2 VMS 5.5-2 - DEC C 5.0, VMS 6.1 - Alpha: DEC C 5.2, VMS 6.2

xmfm is a file manager that shows files as icons in panes. It divides the display of a directory into three areas, executable files, directories and ordinary files to distinguish between them. When a file is selected a range of actions can be performed on it. This is configurable on a per user basis. xmfm also allows arbitrary programs to be run from within it.

Now ported under Alpha/VMS (by Jerome Lauret). Old VAX C object files are always available. This version was tested under Motif 1.2, but XMFM is able to be built under older DECW/Motif versions.

XODOMETER 1.3 (28-DEC-1994)

Mouse Odometer - Author: Mark H. Granoff (Digital)
Licence: None specified
VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 5.5-2 - Alpha: DEC C 4.0, VMS 6.1 (may be 1.5 ?)

Xodometer measures how far your mouse travels in miles or kilometers! It was written as more of an exercize, than as a useful program (obviously). The end result of the exercize, however, yeilded this fun little application.

XSNAP (14-MAR-1994)

Snapshoot of a portion of screen - Author: Clauss Strauch
Licence: free usage and distribution - See COpyright notice in source files
VAX: VAX C 3.2, VMS 5.5-2 - Alpha: DEC C 4.0, VMS 6.1

The xsnap program allows one to take a snapshot of a specified region of the screen. If xsnap is run without a region being specified, the user is prompted to interactively drag one out with the mouse. In this case, pressing button 1 will select one corner of the region, and an opposite corner will be selected upon the release of button 1. A window whose contents are a copy of this region is then created.

xwit is an X window interface tool. By default when used with no arguments in an xterm it de-iconifies and raises the window. You can specify a different function to do, such as iconifying the window, and apply it to several windows whose name begins with one of the given strings, or a particular window id given, or the window id found in the environment variable WINDOWID.
